Hear what he has to say about Long distance marriage: Why my wife and i live separately – OC Ukeje

OC who tied the knot last November to Ibukunoluwa Togonu-Bickersteth at a ceremony in Lagos, has lived separately from his wife since they got married. With wife based in Canada & him based in Nigeria, they have what you would call a long distance marriage and in a recent interview with HIP TV, he sheds light on why they have chosen to this.


He explained,

(It’s) purely circumstantial and the reason I say this is because I think that for every upwardly mobile person or people at some point in your life you are going to have to deal with distance with your partner. Whether at the upstart of a relationship or in the middle or somewhere much later you will experience it. So I know it is a shock for people to say that you get married and that you start doing long distance. First of all because of our work choices, and our current positions as far as work is concerned. So it benefits us both for now to be where we are, and then over the next couple of months, and months can vary. It will begin to add up and then how to unify household will come in play
